Its a shame that this happened to Markov. I'd would be worried about his future, but since he is such a cerebral player, I feel that he will be able to get back on track. If his greatest asset was speed or physicality instead of vision, then it would be another story.

This injury does create an interesting situation for PG. I think its a really big opportunity to retool the defense. I think PG should seek out a replacement for Markov as the #1 defenseman, and then re-sign Markov himself to a lesser role (and at a cheaper price). I think Markov will be able to continue being a elite defenseman when he returns, but I would feel uncomfortable relying on him as the Habs #1 defenseman. Its all alot easier said then done though...

Letting Markov walk would be a mistake in my opinion.
